Wishing Upon A Star


When you wish upon a star
makes no difference who you are!!!
Remember that saying from
when we were kids?
What it means to me now,
is that we are all the same,
no matter what nationality,
color, religion, race…..
We are the same under
the same roof, under the same God
under the same love for other.
There is so much dissidence
right now, and it makes me sad.
It makes me want to shake someone
and say, “we’re in this together!”
Don’t you see, if you hurt some one
Then you hurt all of us!!!
There is a better way to live!
Let’s live with love, respect and
honor for the other,
and then when we wish upon
a star,
It will make no difference who you are!!!

Mother’s Day


Ah, Mother’s Day.
An honor we give to our
Mothers for all the love
and care they give to us
over the years.
This year I want to be
sentimental and
write about my own
mother.
My mom was a single mom
in the 50’s, when it was
not a common thing.
She was strong and yet weak
Stern yet soft
Stubborn and yet accepting
she raised my two sisters and me
and sacrificed daily to make
our lives feel like
ordinary lives.
She died when she was 72 years old,
she was taken way before
her time and I miss
her dearly.
 So, here’s to Betty,
one heck of a woman!!!!
